October 29 2014 – London, UK – Chris Cook, Community Manager at GamePointsNow/GameKeysNow, today announced that he will be making an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “The Longest Video Game Marathon On a Football Game” by playing FIFA 15. The attempt aims to smash the current record of 48 hrs 5 minutes and help raise funds on behalf of the awesome charity Special Effect!.
“I’ve been playing FIFA games since they first started way back on the Mega Drive, so couldn’t think of a better way to raise money & awareness for a truly amazing cause,” said Chris Cook, “As someone who has seen firsthand how gaming can help enhance lives, I could not think of a better charity to lend my support to”.
The event will be taking place at the popular gaming themed cocktail bar Loading Bar in Dalston, North London between the 5-7th November 2014 and members of the public are encouraged to come a long and join in, have a drink and more importantly, donate to Special Effect!
Online donations can be made via Chris’ JustGiving page.
The record attempt will be live streamed live (internet stability permitting) via Twitch.tv and will feature giveaways from big name supporters like Insert Coin Tees, QWERTEE, Campo Retro clothing, Papa Johns Pizza, Hauppaugeand more. There will also be opportunities for people to challenge Chris to online matches throughout the entire attempt.
